Jack Turner looks forward to imminent pro debut in Glasgow

RINGSIDE 14/03/2019

Jack Turner is ready to show the super-bantamweight weight-class that there is a new star in the division when he makes his professional debut in Glasgow next week.

Amateur star Turner takes his first steps in the paid ranks when he fights live on iFL TV at the Emirates Arena on March 22, and he’s hoping to make a big statement to his domestic rivals.

Turner said: “There’s not long until the fight now and preparation has been brilliant. I’m in tip-top shape and ready to go and do the damage and put in a good performance on my debut, so I can’t wait.

“I’m ecstatic to get the ball rolling. There were a few mishaps with my license, but now it’s all set in stone and I’m ready to go. The buzz is unreal. I cannot wait to show the boxing world what I’m all about and show the super-bantamweights that there is a new kid on the block.

“As an amateur I had a lot of bouts and won numerous titles. I boxed for my country numerous times also, but I didn’t feel like I got to showcase my skills and talent as an amateur due to the politics of the amateurs. I’m happy to now move on from that and start my professional journey.”

The card in Glasgow sees Iain Butcher challenge Scott Allan for the Celtic bantamweight title, plus Kieran Smith defends his WBC International Silver super-welterweight belt against Adam Harper.

There is also a packed undercard, including the likes of David Brophy, Lewis Benson, Michael McGurk, Reece McFadden and many more.
